27 December Surf Session: Pics - Report

Hi, I'm Matte from Italy, I play surf and bodyboard in Genova, Liguria, Italy. My favourite spot is Capo Marina, a little beach near my house. Here, there aren't always waves, so when it's possible, I run catchin' them. We are a small grouop of locals which surf every season of the year, expecially  in the summer, 'cause we haven't got to go to school and the water is quite warm. In the last time, many people (maybe seeing this page) are coming, little by little  with us. I hope you'll enjoy this page, and come with us for a surf. 

It's ready a new section of my page very COOL: How to Surf, a bitchin' guide for beginners, it will teach you how to surf, This is the Jewel of my page !! 
And since, I recived a lot of e-mails asking bodyboard section, I opened it !!! Go and see and advice ->

The big Wednesday


This film is my cult movie, I think all the surfers have to see it.
There are no word to describe all the emotions which it can transmit.
You can fin some documentation here, comprending two little clips taken directely from the film.

The main logo of the film 

    Two Clips from the film in QuickTime


No matter what rolled in on the 
tides of time, California surfing 
buddies Matt, Jack ans Leroy 
knew they'd stick together. And 
that they'd be ready when a rare 
20-foot swell hit the coast at last. 

Big Wednesday celebrates 
surfing as much as the most 
dedicated kid who ever waxed up 
a board. And it's more: a 
fascinating 1962 - 1974 chronicle 
of friendships and lifestyles in 
transition. John Milius 
(Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn) 
directs and co-scripts, investing 
 Big Wednesday with his own 
 passion for the ultimate ride and 
 truthful feel for those turbulent 
 times. Stars Jan-Michael 
 Vincent and William Katt are 
 accomplished surfers; co-lead 
 Gary Busey (Point Break) 
 learned for the role.And the 
 sensational cinematography 
 drops you inside some awesome 
 barrels of the ocean blue!
